28.04.2014 | Transfer Partners extends its Asian and African Reach through the Expansion of Globalscope

Transfer Partners - as a member of the international M&A network Globalscope Partners - is delighted to announce the success of the networks' 15th Semi-Annual Conference.

During the conference, Globalscope confirmed its expansion in:

• China into Shanghai and Jiaxing; and
• Southern Africa into Namibia and Botswana.

Henning von Poser, partner at Transfer Partners and responsible for Globalscope activities, commented: "We are very proud to extend Globalscope’s reach in two of the fastest growing economies in the world. This will benefit our clients hugely."

The four day conference programme, hosted by Globalscope’s member in South Africa, GKA Capital, was attended by more than 40 partners from 23 of Globalscope’s 32 member firms. For the reception at the Radisson Blu Hotel, the members were joined by numerous selected Southern African entrepreneurs and investors.

Local experts, Willie Thabe of the Black Managers Forum, and Noah Greenhill of the leading niche South African Banking and Financial Services Group, SASFIN, provided insight into the opportunities and challenges in Southern Africa. Extensive sector meetings and best practice presentations by the Globalscope members evidenced the close relationships established in the network for the continuing benefit of our clients.

Michael Moritz, president of Globalscope, congratulated the organizers and the network: "Cape Town was an extraordinary opportunity for Globalscope - this conference not only provided an excellent platform for members to share leads and opportunities, but also gave us great insight into the Southern African economy and M&A landscape. Many thanks to our member firm in South Africa and host for this conference, GKA Capital, which provided an excellent forum for all of us to continue enhancing the service we provide our clients."

The next Globalscope conference will be held in Athens in October 2014.
